Industrial Diseases

Industrial diseases are illnesses that come from working in an industrial environment. The Black Lung is a notorious industrial disease that many coal miners suffered from in the early 20th century. Presently, there are a wide range of diseases that industrial workers can contract from their work environments.

If you are suffering from an industrial disease, your employer may be liable for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Contact Cincinnati industrial disease attorney Stepleton Dugan, LLC to discuss your case. Call 513-321-7733 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Common Industrial Diseases

A number of industrial environments can cause harm to workers who are regularly subjected to certain chemicals, toxins, noises, or odors. Common industrial diseases include:

  • Asthma
  • Chemical poisoning
  • Dermatitis
  • Severe hearing loss
  • Occupational deafness
  • Asbestosis
  • Farmer’s Lung
  • Cancer
  • Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (commonly referred to as “Vibration White Finger”)

Particularly hazardous industries include: oil, plastic, metal, nuclear, and pesticide production.

If you are working with noxious chemicals, your employer should provide you with safety equipment to prevent you from developing an exposure related illness. If you are not amply provided with safety materials or instructed about how to handle toxic substances, your employer may be liable for your injuries.
